Surrey Schools seeks community member to serve on Board Audit Committee
​The Board of Education of School District No. 36 (Surrey) ('Surrey Schools') is seeking to appoint one external member to its newly formed Audit Committee. Applications are being sought from suitably qualified and experienced members of the public to be appointed as an independent external member of the Audit Committee. The committee will meet at least three times a year in Surrey, BC.

The committee will assist in the supervision of the financial reporting process, internal control, internal audit, external audit, compliance and risk. Key areas of oversight for the committee will be financial accuracy, risk management, and assessment and monitoring of the control environment and systems of internal control.

The external member of the committee will have a strong financial management and/or audit background, with an understanding of accounting and auditing standards in a public sector environment. Legal, governance, risk management, information technology (IT) and business management skills and experience are desirable.

Applicants must be a resident of the Surrey or White Rock region and over the age of 18 years. The applicant should have an accounting designation, as well as sufficient accounting and senior financial management expertise to understand public sector accounting and auditing standards. The applicant must not be a current employee or officer of the Board or of any other school district board or school authority. The applicant must not have a parent, child or spouse currently employed by Surrey Schools.

An information package outlining the required skills and experience of the external community member can be downloaded below.

Surrey Schools invites qualified applicants to submit a written expression of interest and detailed resume by 4 p.m., Jan. 24, 2020.
